Manufacturing News

Clean energy and mobility company Pure Hydrogen will supply a hydrogen fuel cell (HFC) powered waste collection truck to Australian waste management company Solo Resource Recovery (pictured).

The vehicle will be used to service Solo’s municipal contracts including in Tweed Shire in northern New South Wales for an intial six month period during 2024.

Pure Hydrogen said an agreement executed with Solo provided for further orders for HFC waste collection trucks by Solo subject to a six month trial and other conditions.

Solo is a major provider of kerbside collection services servicing more than 1.2 million bins Australia wide each week.

Pure Hydrogen has developed a number of specialist HFC vehicles, including in April when it launched a hydrogen powered prime mover.

The company is in the final stages of delivering Australia’s first HFC refuse collection vehicle which will be trialed later this year.

The truck to be supplied to Solo is a side loading, general household waste collection vehicle, with the trial utilising the vehicle under different operating conditions.

It will show participating councils a path towards HFC powered vehicles and help to determine the infrastructure needed to support hydrogen operations.

Pure Hydrogen’s HFC waste collection truck is expected to have a range of 300 kilometres before refueling which will be conducted initially at Sulo’s Chinderah depot with 99.97 percent purity hydrogen supplied by Pure Hydrogen.

The vehicle will be 70 percent quiter than conventional ICE vehicles, and have zero emissions from the tailpipe.
